Yardbird Temple draws heavily on a variety of jazz styles, funk, and New Orleans music. They have built a following with their energetic shows driven by their creative improvisational grooves. They are based in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, home of founding members Bobby Burns on alto saxophone and bassist Joe Dupell. Burns is the music director at Kingswood Regional High School. He had been playing in various bands and pit orchestras for years and wanted to have a regular jam session with a few friends, including Dupell. Together with other musicians and noted local drummer Eben Hearn, they formed the first lineup of the band in 2015. Delighting audiences around Wolfeboro with jam-based interpretations of pop songs, jazz and funk classics. Current members filled out the band to include guitarist D.J. DePasquale, tenor saxophonist Andrew Emmanuel, and noted local musician/music educator Tom Robinson on piano and organ.
